I was just wondering if it's possible for osteoarthritis to start progressing thru the body after it starts. Back in 2013 around mid year I started getting signs of arthritis in both of my hands. It wasn't til August 2014 that I was getting signs of it in my feet. My gp tested me both in 2013 and 2014 for the RA Factor and both times it came back negative. March of this year I saw my gp for my yearly physical and back in March is when he gave me a referral to go to a rheumatologist. Saw the rehumatoligist in June and after looking at my hands they had told me more signs of osteoarthritis than RA . But my question is this is it possible for OA to start getting aggressive after it starts. Since March of this year when I was just feeling g it in my hands and feet, I'm now feeling it in my shoulders knees and elbows with in a short amount of time since March. Can OA start to get aggressive once it starts in the body? I've also had discomfort in my hips and lower back since I saw my rehumatoligist in June as well. Any info will help thanks J . Quinn
